Anyone that doesn't understand that certain positions, including DE, picked round 1 should contribute year one on more then a part time basis doesn't understand the draft very well. Anyone that is going to hold an inj during a NFL game against any rookie or any other player, would you have held the same against Shea, or Cutler or Forte or Marshal? You didn't hold it against Carimi, some of you are still pissed he's not a Bear. Fact is DeCastro missed the first several mo's and still came back and got to start for his team, Shea isn't even a starter right now in year 2 and if Izzy was here he'd again be the 3rd man in that rotation. So anyone sitting in here debating the value of a Starting G in the NFL for a guy in a battle of a starting DE job is fooling themselves w/those Bear colored glasses. Shea's production was the equivalent of the amount of games DeCastro played in, and lest we not forget he was drafted by Emery to be a Day 1 3 down starting DE...year 2 and he's still not that. Long right now is still in a battle w/Brown a UDFA that was expected to be, at best a 3rd round pick. He might well end up being the starter, but we'll have to see if that's b/c Emery cannot afford to have another mid 1st pick playing backup or if he's actually good enough to be playing. There's also the distinct chance that he's not starting and it will again be another mid first let down. 19th picked G's and DE's should be starting and giving positive contributions day 1. Emery's going to be, at best, .500 this year.
